Entering Watford - town sign and speed limit On Hempstead Road, just south of Hunton Bridge Interchange on the A411. View east to Russell Lane. The sign with coat of arms of Watford is just inside the boundary of Watford, which runs across the roundabout of the interchange.
Leavesden Green- A41 North Western Avenue Approach to the A41/ A405 junction viewed looking westwards towards the Hunton Bridge roundabout from the Ashfields overbridge.
M25 Motorway Link Road, Chandler's Cross This is the spur road leading to Junction 19 of the M25 Motorway from the Hunton Bridge roundabout, viewed looking westwards from the Langleybury Lane overbridge. Traffic is usually stationary westbound on this stretch during the weekday morning rush hour, but the road is virtually deserted on a Sunday morning. This particular road existed as the A405 trunk road, by-passing Watford, for many years prior to the M25 being built, and the route of the A405 was also incorporated into the motorway from Junction 19 to Junction 17 at Maple Cross. The distant dark triangular shaped structure is the gantry holding a conveyor belt crossing the road, associated with the numerous gravel pit workings in the vicinity.

Watford- The Croxley roundabout Located at the junction of Whippendell Road and Ascot Road.
Watford- High Street and the Exchange Road flyover The High Street is pedestrianized. The flyover was built in 1972 and allows traffic from the A411 Exchange Road to reach Beechen Grove (one-way from left to right in this photograph). The coats of arms of Watford and its five twin towns are on the flyover parapet. They are, from left to right, Mainz, Nanterre, Novgorod, Watford, Pesaro and Wilmington. The twinning with Novgorod, which happened in 1984, met with some local opposition and the forming of the WART group (Watford Against Russian Twinning!).

Shell Filling Station, Dome Roundabout, Garston This filling station has an enormous open forecourt. There are two other stations on or near the Dome Roundabout which is visible in the distance. This makes prices here always very low.
